Dear donor,

The Foster Family Service at Instituto Fazendo História began the year with a major change. As a result of the agreement with the city of São Paulo, we increased our team to serve a larger number of children in the city.

We know that the gains for children in foster families are immeasurable, but there are also benefits for society as a whole. Investing in early childhood is investing in a better future. Therefore, we have an urgent need to raise awareness and disseminate the culture of Foster Family throughout Brazil. That is why we work to reduce the institutionalization of babies and young children in the country. Since then, we have 54 children in foster family, published a guide to help other foster family programs and held seminars with the entire São Paulo network to multiply our work methodology.

Even with the Covid 19 pandemic and the need for social isolation, we continue with the execution of all the planned actions, building new strategies to guarantee the continuity of the work. We are currently with 14 children in foster family and we have started online training for new foster families.

Despite all the difficulties that the current moment presents, we remain strong, learning new ways to carry out our work in the best possible way and thus guarantee quality care for all children who need foster care.

Finally, we would like to share the testimony of a father accompanied by our work during the process of the youngest daughter while in Foster Family.

 

"When my daughter was taken in, I was very angry, I didn't understand what was happening,I felt like disappearing when I was alone.Today I understand that the best thing that happened in 2019 was that she was with a foster family at that time. The Fazendo Historia team doesn't just take care of my baby ( in foster family), but take care of me and my son and so I am getting stronger to take care of myself and my children again,my life is changing and now I am no longer alone." Gustavo, Andry´s father

Thank you for supporting us to bring joy in their lifes

Dear donos,

In Brazil, most children who need to be separated from their biological family still go to an institution, even the ones in early childhood. Despite research that shows children, especially under 6, should be fostered in a Foster Family, where they can receive care, stability and a loving home for as long as they need, having the chance to fully develop.

Since 2015, Fazendo Historia Institute has been disseminating this type of foster care service in Brazil, working to end young children s institutionalization. Our Foster Care Service has fostered over 42 children, and published a guide to help other foster family programs around the country develop the service in a satisfactory way.  

And now in 2020 we are getting bigger! With the help of São Paulo s municipality we are increasing our capacity, and will be able to foster up to 30 children in foster families. A big step towards ending young children s institutionalization in the largest city of Brazil.  

We have a lot of challenges ahead but we are looking forward to it. Together we are creating new stories for Brazilian children!

Finally, we would like to share a testimony of a foster family who has just fostered their fifth child:

“We are very calm, without anxiety this time. First because it is already the fifth time and we know more about the procedures and "what will come". And secondly for the trust in the process, in the service itself, in the support we receive from the professionals. The whole process is well braided, firm, solid to help whatever appears in the way. We are available and open to deal with whatever comes! “

Thank you for your support

Dear donor,

Our Foster Care service provides home for children under 6 years old, in São Paulo - Brazil. Since 2016 we have fostered 42 children and have currently 14 active foster families.   

In 2019, we fostered 14 children, 5 of them were adopted, 2 returned to their biological family and 7 are still being fostered in our service. Children fostered in a Foster Family receive care, stability and a loving home for as long as they need, having the chance to fully develop.

Over the last years, it has been our goal to disseminate this form of care in Brazil, working to end young children´s institutionalization. In 2019 we have published a guide to help other foster family programs around the country develop the service in a satisfatory way.

This was a great acomplishment and it was only posible because of your help!

Together we are creating new stories for Brazilian children!

 Obrigado (Thank you)

Dear donosr,

The Instituto Fazendo História has just hosted  the  39th child by its Foster Family Service , providing family and community life for babies and young children who are temporarily separated from their families of origin. It is a transitional period that involves a lot of care, protection, affection and investment: for both children and their families. With skilled technical work and well-trained foster  families, we can transform and resignify many stories of disruption and violation of rights.

Following is the testimony of a foster family, who went through their third host:

“The child plays, grows and develops quietly while the tree fulfills its protective role. We, the host  families of the Making History Institute, are like the leaves of the tree ... Together we protect these little angels and leave them free and strengthened to go their own way. ”(Marco - foster family)

 

Thank you!

Dear donor,

Being a foster family is affection, support, it is a community experience of care. Much more than taking care of one child, it is a political act. Families taking care of each other, helping each other when they most need it!

Our Foster Care service provides home for children under 6 years old, in São Paulo - Brazil. Since 2016 we have fostered 36 children and have currently 14 active foster families. 

In Brazil, most children in alternative care still goes to institutions, unfortunately Brazilians are not used to the foster family service. And over these years, it has been our goal to disseminate this form of care, as we know that every child needs a loving home and stability.

 

Your help makes it possible to create new stories for Brazilian children!

 Obrigado (Thank you)
